On 2-2-2018 I had a accident at work. I was standing on the second step of a semi truck to reach in to get a flashlight and when I raised back up I hit the back of my head back on the door frame and it caused me to lose consciousness. I fell to the ground landing on my butt and hitting my head again. When I came too I walked inside and told my boss at Carter Express and they told me to go to Fort Sanders Regional Hospital in Knoxville, TN. They didn't even offer to take me. So, I did. They did CT scan and said nothing is wrong just a concussion. The doctors their didn't even tell me about the epidural occipital hematoma I had and the crack and fracture in my odontoid either. They failed to mention anything that's wrong with me on the count of them working with my employer Carter Express to hide all the problems I have. Hospital protocol is to admit someone for those conditions and watch to make sure their condition doesn't get worse before it gets better. Need less to say eight days after being released I have my wife take me to Morristown Hamblen Hospital in Morristown, TN where I have a stroke and heart attack and they rush me to Fort Sanders in Knoxville, TN where the doctors their try to coverup the acute heart attack, strokes, crack and fracture in my odontoid, etc. by saying that Morristown Hamblem Hospital was wrong and that I'm just suffering from post concussion syndrome. Fort Sanders puts the acute heart attack and stroke in my permanent records but they don't let me or my wife know about it. Fort Sanders even changes my patient status from inpatient to out patient for observation within hours from arriving from Morristown Hamblen Hospital by ambulance. That''s against the notice act. Fort Sanders doesn't even let me or my wife know they did that. They are suppose to let you know in writing and verbally. So Fort Sanders let's me out of the hospital after two nights to continue to have white matter strokes for months on the count of the epidural occipital hematoma, the crack and fracture in my odontoid, etc. I go and get my own MRI done and it shows the additional brain damage that I have now on the count of Fort Sanders not doing their job and they start using my MRI I had done myself as the MRI they did four months prior. They even work with my lawyer I had at the time Denise Terry in Morristown, TN, Carter Express, doctors, etc. to try to get me put in jail so that my story doesn't get out. I have all kinds of additional issues because of Fort Sanders, Carter Express, Nova, Jefferson Family Physicians, doctors, etc. working together to not allow me to get adequate medical care on the count of my accident happening at work. So be very careful going to any of these places especially if your accident happens at work. Because they would rather you die than to get better. Fort Sanders doesn't want to lose the ability to see patients that have accidents at work. I wouldn't go their anymore myself because nerely all the doctors I saw their are inconfident. Especially Dr. Hora, Dr. Chaltry, etc. Dr. Hora is suppose to be a neurologist. They don't even do a exam on me. I was seeing six or seven fingers and they didn't even care. So be aware of these places they don't care about the working person only their pockets do they care about. So if your having a stroke or heart attack or really anything else wrong with you, you would be better off just staying at home besides wasting your time going to Fort Sanders. Because if I'd stayed at home my condition now wouldn't be any different than if I had not went to the hospital because they didn't do anything besides try to cover everything up. They even put in my permanent records that they did a surgery on me. But me or my wife can't remember anything about that. It's hard to believe this place is allowed to stay open. They do more harm to people than they do good. These doctors don't remember the oath they took to be a doctor they only care about themselves and to bring pain and suffering to those they come across. Sincerely, Claude Ridley Jr.

Horrible people! Do not care about the patients. I had to ARGUE with them about everything! DISRESPECTFUL ENTIRELY. Coordination between doctors and customer service from operators is absolutely appalling. Would NEVER recommend any expecting mothers to this hospital.

Had total knee replacement one week ago and my thoughts:

* "Joint Class" was a joke. Taught very condescendingly with sketchy terminology (they are going to 'concrete' the replacement parts into your bones) and personal anecdotes. Not worth attending. 👎🏼👎🏼

* Preadmission testing was quick and efficient. Staff was friendly and competent. 👍🏼👍🏼

* Presurgery was the same. I appreciated a realistic arrival time based on the surgery schedule. All questions and concerns were handled cheerfully and professionally.👍🏼👍🏼

* Did not spend an undue amount of time in recovery and was moved to a room promptly. 👍🏼👍🏼

* Of the four nurses who rotated in and out during my 24 hour stay on the orthopedic floor, three were very helpful and one wasn't. Allison (5 stars for her) was extremely helpful. 👍🏼👍🏼

* They tell you not to bring your own daily meds, but you had better if you want to have them. I asked no less than 4 times when I was going to get my meds, and the answer was always 'soon'. Never got them, and it's not like they were Schedule 2 narcotics. Cholesterol, blood pressure, and beta blocker - should have been easy.👎🏼👎🏼

* No trouble at all getting pain meds. 👍🏼👍🏼

* Despite the fact that I was in a room by 2:00 pm, PT managed to miss me the day of my surgery and I wasn't gotten out of bed for 20 hours after surgery. Very poor communications regarding therapy, and my surgeon was not at all happy about this. 👎🏼👎🏼

* At least in my case, discharge was streamlined. When my doctor OK'd my discharge, I was in the car in 30 minutes. 👍🏼👍🏼

I am alive because the awesome medical professionals at Ft Sanders Regional. From Colon Surgery to Brain Tumor, the have been second to none. I have witnessed friends and family going to other facilities and there is no comparrcom. Last night, as before, they treated me like royalty. The didn't stop running tests until the found what was wrong. I was seen by a real doctor and it's sad that I have to even say this. My wife went to another provider (I won't mention the name) with chest pain. They didn't even have a Doctor on duty. Regardless, I will Never go anywhere else. Dr McDonald is by far the best! Nurses, Dennis, Jeremy and a couple others I didn't get their names, should be lead nurses. They definitely should be teaching the ones that relieved them. Again, no names because I was about to be discharged, but it was a day and night difference. One came flying in, no introduction, ripped tape off that held my IV in, put no pressure just cotton swab and bandage. Blood went all over my clothes, bed, and floor. He quickly vanished before I could catch him. My daughter went and got another nurse while my wife applied pressure. She quickly did what the young man should have done had he took an extra minute. The folks conducting all the test CT, Nuclear Scan, and Xray were the BEST! All in all I am ever so thankful.

My son suffer's with pancreatitis. I rushed him into the ER! I kid you not. ..4 1/2 hour's later he is STILL in the waiting room waiting to be seen. When we got there.. there might have been 5 people in the waiting room! He was in so much pain that he was practically on the floor. They could have cared less!!!
